Aria Property Group has submitted a development application for a twenty-storey residential tower located at 58-62 Leopard Street, Kangaroo Point.
Designed by Rothelowman, the tower features a distinctive painted art crown which is planned for the rooftop soffits. This locally produced artwork will be illuminated at night so that the public can see from below.
On the ground level, a public subtropical arcade referred to in the development application as ‘the pavilion’ is proposed which would allow for public occupation zones and pedestrian through flow towards the Gabba stadium and Cross River Rail.
In total, 25% of the ground plane has been given over as usable, lush and variable public realm, including seating, hardstand, softscape, water features and public art.
“The public realm on the ground plane will embrace timber and stone to create a robust civic feel. Materials will help distinguish the interface between public and private realms.” – Rothelowman.
The building also would feature a triple height lobby in order to to free up the ground level for the provision of public open space, including enticing communal recreation and refuge areas and landscaping.
In addition to the public open space at ground level, the rooftop (800m2) is devoted to communal open space. The rooftop features:
- A large furnished resident lounge space
- Outdoor dining areas and BBQ facilities
- Pool, spa and terrace lounge area
- Generally unrestricted views of the South Brisbane and the D’aguilar Ranges, the Gabba, End, South Bank, Mount Cootha and CBD.
